in the state of the union to work together. we have tried to create an environment where we would be able to work on things that have historically been challenging, but i think we need to do both. >> i think i am out of time. >> we will get the clock fixed. >> thank you for your service, mr. chairman. i want to draw attention to the last time you came before this committee. it was an unusual time were you did not just talk about a balanced budget, but as you referenced, you working with president clinton and this conference -- and this congress produced a balanced budget, something that no other president before or since has done in decades. our republican colleagues, when they took over instead of building on that success, they squandered that success. they never met a tax break that they did not like and they believed in the alchemy that those tax breaks would not for pay for themselves. that in addition to the tax breaks that they advanced, they advanced one increase in spending after another, increasing spending at an incredible rate without wanting to pay for it. after eight years of
the case be made for all women in a college environment? you have been the president of such a school. >> one of the things people think is a single sex school is all women. we have some male professors. the tilt is female, but we have male professors. they are not sitting in a convent. you have other school that are close by. so, none of these children or young people are being koiserred. it's an important point to make. a lot of them think they are going to be. however, i think there are lots of benefits. there are some disadvantages. there are 4,000 plus colleges in the united states. 4,000. you have clernlg colleges for african-american. 45 women's colleges. you have one founded for jewish people, why not variety? i didn't go to a single sex school. a lot of women who are achievers didn't. some want to make that choice. they want to learn and be focused. they want to have the opportunity to learn without the distraction of young men in the room and they are being prepared to go into a world with all the tools that make them unintimidated by men. they have learned how to argument.
, the time is calling for social justice, economic justice, looking at our environment, finding a solution to war and terrorism, finding creative ways of moving forward. there's a zeitgeist in the country right now, a collective longing for fairness. and in every respect, president obama represents fairness. throughout his four years, he he's wanted fairness, whether it's in economics or health reform or looking at the environment as our extension of ourselves. president obama represents hope, trust, stability and compassion. he's the right person for this time. it's no accident that the inrecalling ral ceremony is tomorrow on martin luther king day. i just wonder if when martin luther king jr. said "i have a dream," did he have this vision? >> interesting. >> you said lincoln was the right man for the time. in your article, i don't have it in front of me, i'm paraphrasing, you said lincoln was reviled and he was loved at the same time. think many people would feel the same way about president obama now. >> yes. >> do you think people knew that about link unand do you think it's the same a
there in helping the schools provide a more secure environment and in terms of what's been provided to congress on the gun control side, all i can say, that's not going to help keep our children safer and i want to look for solutions in the schools to have better technology, have the better architecture, have the armed trained presence there, to really protect the children and keep our parents having confidence in our schools. >> sean: they keep saying gun-free school zones. is that the answer? >> well, that's actually -- no, it's not the answer in terms -- of course, you could have an armed trained law enforcement person there, even in a gun-free zone. so, that does not necessarily be inconsistent. but in some parts of the country there's not enough resources for a sworn officer there, so the question is, are we going to have other trained school officials there that are trained, properly trained, but can have a response capability to an armed intruder? right now, that would violate many of the state laws on gun-free zones. and so, you're going to have to look at legal changes to accomplish th
, in a safe way, in a way that helps the environment, in a way that helps the economy and the local community and all of the above. but we've been an entitlement -- in entitlement processes around the country that have taken over 20 years. so if you think about projects -- and we're in one right now that i won't name exactly where it is, but it's been over 20 years. we have a project down in tampa, florida, that took us 21 years to open. so it's now the most successful shopping center in that region. it's created at least 3-4,000 permanent jobs. a huge spin-off and a huge catalyst for all kinds of growth. but why should it take us 21 years to do something that's really good? and i think that's the problem. you know, regulation is necessary, but regulation has to have its place. there has to be a balance. and, you know, sort of determining the size of government, a lot of people have said, it should be the people's will, but it doesn't feel that way. and bigger is not always better. and, you know, the idea of a faster and smarter government, you know, i said earlier is really sort of like an o
environment then and again, as i talk to business leaders, they said, you know what? if you can make it simpler and fairer we're willing to go through at that process. it's not going to be easy, but again, the bigger picture here, we can be more attractive for jobs and higher paying jobs if we don't have an individual income tax and a corporate income tax. >> greta: all right, as i understand it, your personal income tax in your state is 6.8%, is that about right? >> that's about right. and that's what your small businesses would pay, and that's simply too high. >> greta: all right, and do you have a democratic legislature or a republican? 'cause that will make a big difference whether or not you get your program put through or not. >> well, as you know, in nebraska we have quoted nonpartisan legislature, but we do have more republicans than democrats and again, i think they'll listen to the citizens of our state and we're going to work very , very hard to get if implemented. >> greta: in terms of your income tax, have you looked at the neighboring states? and that's what a lot of go
that could be said. that being said, stocks that go to 90 will go to 120. a very bullish environment if we do sell off, i want you to buy, not sell. always a bull market somewhere, right here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer. i will see you tomorrow. >>> >>> good evening, i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." yes, the stock market still bullish. i think that's great. i'm a bull too right now. but here's my challenge to everyone. instead of just a 2% economy, why can't we do so much better and get to a 4 or 5% growth economy? president obama has still not adopted progrowth policy. here's another thing. i'm not the only one who wants the president and congress to significantly cut spending. i mean, significantly. it would be progrowth and no more tax hikes by the way. spending and the debt are the top issue of concern for voters. look, these heinous mass murders are not about weapons. question -- why isn't anyone tackling the really tough issue that may be the root causes of these atrocities? such as broken families, such as the absence of fathers who set examples for their sons? such as
, deficits, gun control, immigration. a lot to do and not a great environment to get it done. but with us now, two men who may not have to worry too much about that, but who may give us great insights if possible to get great things done. barney frank, the former democratic congressman from massachusetts and steve latourette, republican from ohio. first to you, congressman, as the democrat, what does the president have to do differently in the second term to have a more cooperative, working environment. to you, sir, what does the republican party need to do to try to get some things done? >> i have to differ with the preface, john. >> i thought you might. >> barack obama -- look, this notion that partisanship has taken over. it began when barack obama became president. i was chairman of the financial service committee of 2007 in the bush administration and i worked very closely with hank paulson, secretary of the treasury. we worked on putting fannie mae and freddie mac to stop the lawsuits. george bush went to harry reid and nancy pelosi in december of 2007. he said the economy is slipping,
to find any object to any type of environment. >> on tractors -- contractors are bracing for the worst place scenarios. >> they could start fresh. now it's two more months and they wonder how they will survive and be impacted. >> the threat of spending cut has immediate impact. jonathan serrie, fox news. >> bret: look at the markets, the dow brokebe a five-day winning streak. still ahead, does slaughtering people in cyber space lead to the real thing in real life? why not enough water in lake michigan means higher prices for you an your family. ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. >> bret: a fox news alert. moments ago, the federal aviation administration, faa grounded all boeing 787 airplanes. they said the operators must firm demonstrate the batteries are safe. the new aircraft has been plagued by a series of problems, includi
senator schumer said there is still a pretty tense environment here in washington and imm after the inaugural ceremonies up here on the platform, they go inside for the traditional inaugural luncheon where the president, speaker boehner and majority harry reid will be sitting down at the same table and wonder what that environment is like. i asked former bush white house chief of staff andy card about that remembering back to 2001 after that controversial election, and what the environment was there, here is what he told me. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere that george w. bush experienced in his first term of office, it was a little bit chilly and cold, but at the same time, you can't help, but be wrapped up in the excitement of an inauguration. >> reporter: of course, that's what this really is about. celebrating american democracy on monday, tomorrow, the big question, what will the environment be like on tuesday morning, alisyn. >> alisyn: well, that's absolutely right. there is a lot of environment, john. thanks for showcasing that for us and we ca
has to take the lead on is the environment and catastrophic climate change. if we don't deal with that issue, who knows what the fate of the earth is going to be. who cares whether the rich pay 36% or 39%. that's not going to change the course of the country unless you have comprehensive tax reform that dealt with the fact that we are becoming a nation of inequals. like on the eve of the great depression. >> certainly i would agree with that. i would also disagree with part of it, because it has been shown that enough people do care about that wealth and equality because he did win as a not terribly popular president in a reelection. but one of the other things is the who issue of guns. i don't remember and i don't have the breadth of knowledge that you do but i don't seem to remember a -- an issue like what he is having to do now or has chosen to do now with guns being sort of gifted to him -- or to a president at the beginning of a second term. that gives him a bit of momentum that i don't remember -- momentum going into the second term that few presiden
our environment is going to unfold in the next several years. you can hedge against some of the natural disaster, one making sure fema is on point, two addressing climate change, the root cause. when you look at the arab spring and the middle east, that's a complicated issue. part of what we're dealing with here is when you're leader of the free world for four years you have four years to deal with a lot of different crises. when you're in for eight years, twice as many term things can happen. in that kind of environment, i think it's very, very difficult to wrestle with or more me protry to predict what may or may not happen in the middle east but it seems pretty clear the obama administration is moving more towards a strategy and tactics, a smaller footprint in the middle east, right, less intervention oriented and more strategic. if you look at the selections for his defense team, he's interested in prosecuting the war on terror in a very different way. at the end of the day, i hope the middle east works some of its issues out without a lot of u.s. intervention, but we
was a police cadet at 16 years old. you think the safest environment. i became paralyzed. now it just shows that you can't prevent every gun related incident. but we can make sure that we take common sense steps to keep our kids safe and the answer isn't always more guns, especiallily having more guns around our kids. so when i hear things like we're going to arm teachers, security officers in schools, it does concern me and by the way, there's a difference between trained police officers i would be much more open to that idea, we do have trained police officers, resoursz officers in schools and they certainly have a role to play, but it isn't necessarily about having guns in our schools that's going to keep our kids safe. making sure that weapons don't get in the wrong hands, criminals or people that have been ruled to be in mental health issuings that would preclude them from having a weapon because they're a danger either to themselves or to others. >> what path do you see forward? speaker john boehner has said the senate needs to act first on this gun legislation, but senator harry reid
environment? >> oh, absolutely. i mean you know what we realize is we as a nation are some of the greatest people on the planet, but it happens unfortunately during crisis. we come together work things out, we roll up our sleeves whether there's a tsunami, hurricane, tornado, whatever, quake. the tragedy in newtown, the worst tragedy we've seen in our lives of little children being gunned down. we come together as a nation with the best being shown. somehow if we could keep that spirit without crisis, wow, we'd be an incredible nation. >> we're not far from the reflecting pool and we heard the words of the march on washington and the speech your father gave. what do you think about that? >> the memorial or the -- >> both actually. >> what -- you know it's all interestingly tied in, and this is what's wonderful. this year the 50th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation and the poor people's proclamation. he was trying to put together all walks of life to say let's clear the climate really for a decent way for all people. 4r5 years later we're still there and the
? that is a very rich interest level, in our current interest- rate environment. you have to wonder if the bank is not just holding on to your loan to maintain a high level of interest? but i wonder if this may be worth your while to try to go to another bank and not refinance with the same company. it has become a much more difficult circumstance to get a mortgage because the banks are still recovering from all of the bad loans that they made during the real-estate mania. >> one other issue that was brought up was the issue of debt-income ratio, and this is something richard spoke about and what he would do with the qualified loans. american hero joe says, what did he mean by 20% of the grossly month in come? explain this issue for us? >> this goes to the heart of the ability to repay the loan issue, that described a little bit ago. we don't want people taking on loans they cannot afford to repay, that leads us to problems. what they have decided is that 43% is the outside level, if your mortgage debt, plus or other debt, with car loans or consumer debt or credit cards, -- if your other obliga
to have buzz-in doors, that infrastructure is part of creating safe secure learning environments. and then being able to really look at the personnel that you have in your school that helps support students. from training for teachers in the classroom to the other adults who are in the classroom because there are so many adults there besides the classrooms the classroom teachers the school bus drivers, the janitors, you know, the shooting at the high school in california, it was a teacher and a campus supervisor who really talked down that student and prevented lots of further violence. that kind of training is critically important. i mean, look at in this time of crisis when states have slashed budgets and taken so many resources out of schools, some of those resources are school counsellors, school psychologists, social workers, and now, where you might have had a school counselor per school, maybe dealing with two or 300, some of the ratios now for school psychologists, for example, is one to 1,000. you can't possibly provide the kind of support
for them. he is not responsible for them having a proper environment in which to do their jobs and that will include making sure that don't ask, don't tell and elimination of don't ask, don't tell is fully implemented. >> with regard to the military budget, he has called the military a bloated organization. chairman of the joint chiefs, martin dempsey, said this week that we are on the brink of creating a hollow force. would a secretary of defense hagel preside over the hollowing out of the defense department? >> the biggest concern with respect to who will league out is this sequester that's hanging like a sword over the department. that's what they had tried -- have to not let that happen but with respect to going in and finding things within the department of defense that perhaps you don't need or you can eliminate, if that's what you mean by bloat, i hope he does find bloat and gets rid of it. >> do you agree with his characterization that it's bloated? >> bloated doesn't necessarily mean the whole department is bloated. bloated mean there is are probably things in the depa
, at huge cost to both the environment and economy says energy expert kirit parikh. he traces the problem to policies that never really took into account the cost of power and gave it away to some consumers >> we started out with saying farmers should get cheap and free electricity. this was 30 years ago when we wanted farmers to really adopt more modern technologies, it was considered a good way to promote green revolution. >> reporter: power was distributed cheaply or free to farmers and other groups who's votes politicians courted. little effort was made to meter it. that prompted many people to hook themselves up, illegally. parikh says a third of all power is stolen off the grid. >> of the generated electricity is not charged to anyone. >> reporter: with little new money coming in, public utilities haven't been able to expand capacity or to buy enough fuel like coal or natural gas-- both in short supply anyway. power must be rationed but some regions overdraw their allotment. that can cause the system to shut down, or as it did last year collapse. but power failures are just the tip
the aerial spraying, fumigation, we destroyed millions of acres of coca and rain forest environment. one of the most by a diverse countries and the world, literally scorching the years. but what are politicians don't talk about is that colombia is bigger than texas and california combined. the same is true bolivia and peru. a very large land masses. trying to eradicate is like trying to wage a war on dandelions in the united states. good luck. it's not possible. nonetheless, after 12 years of spraying and just merciless onslaught of eradication, 12 years ago 90 percent of cocaine in the united states originated from columbia. after a dozen years of intense drug war in colombia, today about 95 percent of u.s. cocaine originates from columbia. whereas less than 1 percent originally from bolivia. oblivion's actually have done much better in terms of eradication, interdiction of cocaine transiting through peru to brazil and argentina and other countries. also, they have captured and seized more of that than previous governments that were very subservient to u.s. interest. so by any objective
in this city. they can do lots of different things to create different environment russ. when calista and i left the inaugural in 2009, the president had given three great speeches, one here just before the election in northern virginia, one at grant park and then the inaugural address. i said if he governs like those three speeches, he will be eisenhower around he will split the republican party. three or four weeks later, he sits down with nancy pelosi and harry reid, passed 780 billion in stimulus, no one having read the bill and the republicans gut it and the speeches were wrong. the president tomorrow is going to sound right, okay? if he follows through on tomorrow's speech, he has a chance to be eisenhower. i don't think he will. i think he wants to be roosevelt in his second term. but that's neither here nor there. if congressional republicans can reach out on issues, take the case of gun control, i think the house judiciary committee ought to hold hearings in chicago. this is the president's hometown. the mayor is the president's former chief of staff. they have very strict gun cont

typical of the urban environment that you're going to go into -- let's go back to aurora. those covering communities around aurora, colorado that it is an important conversation because they're sore consensus around the country above refer to its gun legislation that complements other things. it was defined in republican areas a lot of support for afterschool. the further away you get in continuing the conversation i would say you dispel a breakdown of cultural barriers because there are differences, your ranch in montana. >> on came to my ranch to go fishing and i said to my ranch manager, who is an avid outdoorsman and quite apolitical, owns a lot of guns, but primarily a traditional bow hunter. i say trade when it's coming at us to the has chief of staff ms. brittany secret service detail within. said i've got to go make a spirit i said no, they are going to let their guns. the secret service came and spent a lot of time and came back on other occasions to go fishiness in the secret service had my ranch manager bonded over it. >> respect do not and i don't want to use your ranch incom

many things foraenergy and the environment. i know that a lot were included in the economic stimulus bill. host: is president of? making fewer promises that he was initially? -- is president obama making fewer promises than initially? guest: absolutely. the 2012 campaign was a campaign of attacks. when we look back at the moments of the campaign, as you look at the debates and what they were saying on the campaign trail of what they were saying in commercials, they spent so much of the time attacking each other. relatively little laying out their agenda in any detail. this was one of the hardest to fact check. mitt romney did not provide details about the tax plan. obama spent some time attacking mitt romney that there were just some many fewer promises made. there was less of an agenda. host:the score coard looks at 500 promises made by obama. he has made progress on 73% of them. thank you for being here. that website is politifact.com. >> tomorrow, cheryl olson talks about violent video game and the effect on young people. john lott talked about the obama administration's efforts
unemployment rate, none of which reflect a good economic environment. our goal is to have economic growth and create jobs. that's what we were elected to do. bill: we've seen in other states, florida for years, texas as well. what you would do is you would tax things that are currently not being taxed by the state, such as certain legal fees, accounting fees, spa services, and food. ultimately what would you get out of it? >> well, you have to look at some serious points. consumption-based sales and use tax very broad based on both goods and service efs is s is a very good economic driver as compared to the negative effect of income taxes which is a detriment to economic growth and jobs. what we believe is to expand the sales tax basin to goods and services, that is something that would absolutely create business activity, and therefore income and gdp growth and with that we were going to get rid of completely the negative taxes, which would be income taxes, both personal and corporate, and what that does is it will create jobs. bill: okay, now we -- i know you believe it's got a pretty g
of law and having order and creating an environment where people can thrive because there is that order. but also understanding we live in a globe where we should be the leaders and have to interact. that's where our children's future are is being a part of this global economy. that's not something we can easily avoid,host: galas on the. thank you for waiting. caller: right now i see that new york's services for the mentally ill are being sanitized because of the union's and pensions -- are being sabotages because of the unions and pensions. i just want to know why pensions are being blamed for everything. i pay into my own pension. host: ok. do you have a question, or is that your statement? caller: why are pensions being blamed for the budget problems? host: thank you for the call, gail. guest: i do not think pensions are being blamed, it is just a mathematical reality. when you look at budgets, obligations, there is no doubt that there are some areas and some places where we have overextended our obligations. we have promised to much. with the shift in demographics, in the financial
interest level in this environment. you have to wonder if the bank isn't holding on to your loan to maintain that high level of interest. i wonder if the might be worth your while to try to go to another bank and not refinance with the same company. it has become a much more difficult circumstances to get a mortgage because the banks are still recovering from all the bad loans that day made during the real estate mania. host: this idea of the debt to income ratio. that was something richard cordray talked-about. this is from american hero joe. explain this issue for us. guest: this goes to the heart of the ability to repay the loan. we do not want people taking on loans that they cannot afford to repay. 43% is the outside level. if your mortgage debt sure other debt -- car loans, credit cards -- exceed 43% of your growth or pre-tax income, then that is too much. that is a loan that is becoming too onerous and you might have trouble repaying. anything below 43% is acceptable as a qualified mortgage. anything above that starts to get into the territory of you are not having enough
environment, both parties are a little more subdued. republicans are panicky after two bad elections in a roam democrats don't have quite the same enthusiasm. but they're happy to be in their position. much better shape than republicans. >> heather: scott, you mentioned your marriage. four years in, you're still kind of a newly wed. you're still supposed to be excited about what is to come. how do the american people about this? we're headed into the second term for the president. are people optimistic? >> well, they're a little more optimistic than theygo. when the president first took office, 27% said the country was heading in the right direction. now it's up to 36%. on the day he was sworn in, four years ago, 35% said their finances were in good shape. it's up to 39% today. so progress, but people aren't really excited yet. there is still a lot of concerns to be dealt with. >> gregg: let's talk about the second amendment. you conducted a poll on that. what did you find? >> 65% of american voters, out of american adults, two out of three, say the reason we have a second amendment is so the
